U.S. Judge Thomas Schroeder of Greensboro, NC; ethical dwarf

 

The state of North Carolina presented Thomas D. Schroeder with a law license in 1984 after he graduated from the Notre Dame University Law School.

 

President George W. Bush was duped into appointing Tommy to a seat on the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina in Greensboro 2007. Tommy didn’t get the appointment because he was the most qualified lawyer in the greater Greensboro area. He got it because he had proven to be a reliable lackey for the local political hacks.

 

In one matter, Tommy was assigned to sit on a case that involved North Carolina’s so-called Voter ID laws, all of which were intended to suppress the votes of minorities and others.

 

The case involved North Carolina’s sham claim that IDs were required to prevent voter identification fraud. Put simply, they were laughingly claiming that illegal immigrants and/or others were attempting to vote. This argument is proven false because North Carolina could not provide any actual evidence of voter identification fraud.

 

Assuming that there were 20 provable cases of voter identification fraud over the past two (2) presidential elections (10 per year) in North Carolina it would be comical at best to argue that these cases would have or could have impacted on the outcome of those elections. In fact, the table below proves just how preposterous North Carolina’s claims of voter fraud are.

Tommy laughingly ruled that the voter law requiring a photo ID such as a driver’s license or passport was a “reasonable impediment” to voting in North Carolina. Of course nothing untoward has taken place regarding voting in North Carolina prior to the institution of this biased regulation, which is clearly intended to help Republicans win elections.

 

It is truly appalling and totally disgusting that dyed-in-the-wool bigots like Gov. Pat McCrory would have the audacity to claim these ID laws are only intended to prevent voter fraud. This is the same bigot that recently and cheerfully (early April 2016) approved legislation designed to shamelessly discriminate against members of the LGBT community.

 

Unfortunately, since Tommy is only 57-years-old (DOB-1959) he could well be handing down more asinine rulings for the next 30 or more years.

 

As we speak (ca. April 2016), Tommy continues to sit as a United States District Court judge in Greensboro, North Carolina.
